Yes, I've noticed the exact same thing. It's strange because I can run OSX and Vista at the same resolution but the OSX desktop looks significantly more crisp, like it's running at a higher resolution or something. When I go back to Vista at the same resolution I feel like everythings all blown out and biggish...

I think it's hilarious that some people here are praising OSX. When I first dove into it, everybody was pissed and making fun of me . . . but look at it now!!!

fwiw, apple is still overpriced ****.

BUT, if they would release OSX to all computers, they would quickly become a favorite of mine

I'll agree with you there. Apple does have some overpriced stuff, but they do have some gorgeous designs and an awesome OS.

I haven't tried FF3 for Mac yet, but since somebody is raving about it, I might as well try it out. I wonder how much better/worse it is compared to Safari . . .

BTW, what do you mean "much more accessible"? Just curious about your experience with OSX.

I never looked at anything on the Wiki and installed it without any hitches. Guess I got so excited about having OSX again I just didn't care lol. I'm still just blown away that there were no problems during or after the install.
FF3 is defiantly better than safari. It seems a little faster, cleaner, and the add-ins just seal the deal. Both are a step up from IE.

As far as more accessible, I mean that I'm able to use my time on the computer much more efficiently. It's little things. Like the dashboard app on the dock for example. And time I ever need to use the calculator, check the weather, etc, it's just one click away. In windows, I have to click through annoying menus to get to it. I know you can just make a shortcut to whatever you want on the taskbar, but the dock on OSX just feels easier to use. It's so much more intuitive

And I love the simplicity of applications like Mail, Address Book, and iCal. So much nicer than that bloatware known as Outlook. I might just ditch Vista and keep OSX on one drive, and install XP on another in case I ever need to play a game.

I have ran into two minor glitches. One the USB 2.0 driver is kind of wonky. I had some trouble getting my iPhone to recognize on the system. All of a sudden it started working though, so hopefully it keeps up. And there is also this weird thing where it won't connect to the internet on startup. I have to go in and reset the DHCP connection. Not a show stopper, but it is annoying.

Wow open office really sucks compared to MS Office. I guess I'm going to have to go back to Vista. Shame. I was really liking this OS.

Maybe when Snow Leopard comes out I'll give it another shot. If it's good enough I might buy Office 2008.

Dude, it took me 45 minutes to Office 2008 for Mac. Try that out and let us know how you like it. I personally like Office for Mac better than Windows.
